XmTextPosToXY(library call)					      XmTextPosToXY(library call)

NAME
       XmTextPosToXY  --  A Text function that accesses the x and y position of a character posi-
       tion

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Text.h>
       Boolean XmTextPosToXY(
       Widget widget,
       XmTextPosition position,
       Position *x,
       Position *y);

DESCRIPTION
       XmTextPosToXY accesses the x and y position, relative to the upper left corner of the Text
       widget, of a given character position in the text buffer.

       In  the	case  of  horizontal writing, the position is the origin of the character. In the
       case of vertical writing, the position is the vertical origin of the character.

       widget	 Specifies the Text widget ID

       position  Specifies the character position in the text for which the x and y  position  is
		 accessed. This is an integer number of characters from the beginning of the buf-
		 fer. The first character position is 0 (zero).

       x	 Specifies the pointer in which the x position is returned.  The  returned  posi-
		 tion  is the distance from the left side of the widget to the left border of the
		 character.  This value is meaningful only if the function returns True.

       y	 Specifies the pointer in which the y position is returned.  The  returned  posi-
		 tion  is  the	distance  from the top of the widget to the character's baseline.
		 This value is meaningful only if the function returns True.

       For a complete definition of Text and its associated resources, see XmText(3).

RETURN
       This function returns True if the character position is displayed in the Text widget; oth-
       erwise, it returns False, and no x or y value is returned.
